Saracens vs Exeter Chiefs
It’s a heavyweight clash as Saracens and Exeter meet in this final round Premiership clash before the international break. The champions have been very disappointing this season and will be further weakened for this clash after a large number of their squad have been called up for international duty. They sit in sixth position and are four points behind the Chiefs who are in the last playoff position. The visitors have also been hit with national call ups with the recall of Henry Slade being the biggest blow to them as the centre as been their best player this season.
TIP: This match will provide good insight towards the depth of these teams as key players will be missing. One player that will be playing is Captain Owen Farrell after he decided to skip the Six Nations and then promptly announced that he is moving to Racing 92 next season. The move will explain his poor form this season as he has looked like he doesn’t want to be on the field with uncharacteristic errors costing his team. The bookies have the Saracens as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.40, Gbets 1.40 and Hollywoodbets 1.41

- The home team have won six of the last seven matches.
Latest results for both teams
Saracens beat Lyon 39-25 in their last match while Exeter lost 40-17 to Bayonne in their last match.
The Chiefs have looked great for the most part of the season but they came horribly unstuck in their last match as they were thrashed 40-17 by Bayonne in the Champions Cup. It could be a case of fatigue as they have avoided rotating their squad and played almost the same team all season. Saracens on the other hand have rotated their squad which is good news as the fringe players do have some match time under their belt. The match is likely to be decided in the forwards and the visitors have the edge in this area after most of their pack has international duty. I am predicting a home win by 3 points.
